ARMONK, N.Y. ‒ The widespread, lingering distress from Hurricane Sandy has prompted students at Armonk's H.C. Crittenden Middle School to step up and take action.
Students from the school's Volunteers in Partnership club and Student Council organized fundraisers and collected more than $1,600 for hurricane relief.
"Keeping in mind that so many people in Armonk were already impacted in their own lives, it was amazing to see students and parents take the time and energy to run this event to support victims of the storm," Assistant Principal Kim Lapple said.
Over the past week, the students held a bake sale and used their creativity to make bracelets from colored and patterned varieties of duct tape. They sold the items at school, with all proceeds going to the relief efforts.
The Volunteers in Partnership (VIP) club is associated with the Armonk Lions Club. The two will organize a toy drive and holiday party for troubled kids at Children's Village in Dobbs Ferry.
